Miss America finally got her wish.
Kenosha native Laura Kaeppeler met Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Monday night at a Milwaukee Bucks basketball game in Milwaukee.
During January’s Miss America pageant, Kaeppeler praised the National Football League’s MVP on live TV and asked Rodgers to call her.
Rodgers was watching the pageant but he never did call, even after Kaeppeler won the crown.
Then last week, the Milwaukee Bucks announced that Kaeppeler would sing the national anthem at Monday’s game against Philadelphia. Rodgers, an occasional visitor to Bucks games, was in the front row.
The Kenosha News said the star quarterback surprised Miss America at halftime in her suite at the Bradley Center. Rodgers later tweeted that he was excited to meet Kaeppeler.
Braun isn’t worried about 0-for-4 start
Ryan Braun still has a smile on his face despite going 0 for 4 in his first two exhibition games.
The Milwaukee Brewers outfielder struck out in his first three at-bats, and he ended that string yesterday when he hit a foul pop-up to first.
Afterward, Braun joked that, “The overwhelming odds are that I’m going to put one in fair territory one of these days.”
Braun said his normal off-season workouts were not affected by all the controversy involving his positive drug test and his successful appeal that wiped out a 50-game suspension.
For now, the National League MVP is playing in every other exhibition game, which meant hew was off Wednesday afternoon when the Brewers play the Chicago White Sox in Glendale Arizona.
Braun was scheduled to pay Thursday against Cincinnati. He’s expected to play more often later this month.
Braun says he’ll try to get in 30 to 40 total at-bats, but that could change based on how he feels. He says his goal is to see different types of pitches and see the ball at his best level.
